Enter the city of Macau and you will be greeted with an array of shopping and entertainment options that will leave you pressed for time.

One of its crowning glories is a renowned water show called The House Of Dancing Water.

Held in the City of Dreams integrated resort in Cotai Strip, it is the world's largest and most spectacular water performance, costing a whopping US$250 million (S$312 million) in investments.

Inspired by Chinese culture, the show tells the tale of a fisherman and his unexpected quest to save a princess.

Spectators are treated to diving stunts, as well as motorcycle and aerial acrobatics, while seated in a water theatre which gives them a 270-degree view of the show.

The water stunts are executed from heights as much as 40m, and the theatre's stage can rise up to 1m above water and be submerged up to 7m in seconds.

Ms Susan Ng, in her 40s, said she was bowled over by the water and lighting effects.

"It is definitely one of the highlights of Macau that visitors should not miss," said Ms Ng, whose photo of the performance won the entertainment category of the Experience Macau Photo Contest organised by Singapore Press Holdings' online portal AsiaOne.

"A big show like this really stays in your memory."
